Flying with your animal - What you need to know.

In December of 2020, the Department of Transportation announced that airlines no longer are required to give special consideration to pets who were once deemed ‘Emotional Support Animals’ or ESA’s.

It has paved the way for airlines to establish their own rules for such pets- and most airlines have indicated that ESA’s are no longer welcome as such. In fact US airlines have unanimously adopted these rules.

The rules for trained service animals have not changed.

Airlines consider pets- usually a dog or a cat (which are allowed on all airlines)- but some allow birds, guinea pigs, rabbits and hamsters. In order for you to travel with your pet- the airline will charge you a fee ranging from $75 to $150 depending on the airline.
